It appears that the Old Saint Peter’s Basilica bears some resemblence to the Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine. The early Jewish and Christian artworks, specifically painting also bears a strong resemblence to the Roman paintings, for instance I looked at the Roman mosaics and saw a similar style in this weeks paintings. It seems like the Jewish and Christian structures were inspired by the Roman architecture with many pieces or structures featuring the dome shape that is commonly seen in Roman buildings. I think the catacombs in the Jewish and Christian culture was a blending of Roman, Etruscan, and Egyptian burial places.
